A Piece of Long leg

I have been thinking of how to shape these creeping plants in my photograph every time I pass by them. I could not wait to grab the opportunity for being alone enough to try it out this morning. I was very happy with the above picture and the result.

The experiment was completed, but I was still overjoy like a child.

When I turned around for my next journey, the joy was overcome by a creepy feeling. That's nothing to do with Indiana Jones, but who else had left this long leg hanging down from a Pulai tree just above of me?

It was as black as coal, as thin as a stick, and the silk stocking had worn out over time.

Indiana Jones and his team had a big fight with a dragon a long time ago, but the scene had been cleared right immediate after the movie shooting was done. Steven Spielberg, hadn't you?

I took a deep breath. I remembered Ann talking about "the communists think you are a soldier, the soldiers think you are a communist. You get shot front and back" in the jungle, but this was something that happened since 1930 and ended in 1989.

I took a deep breath and moved away quickly.

On the way going downhill, I met this creepy long-legged spider.

I thought of something. I did not know whether I was right.

I think I would have quickly left after spying that leg.
I really like your picture of the creeping vine.

Your photos are always so intriguing...however, I would have run away fast after seeing the spider!

You had creepy legs following you. That's what happens on a dark day in the jungle. I know that adventurers like Indy and you both like that.

That is a spooky leg and a very interesting species of spiders in the last picture!

The leg is very spooky. Reminds me of when Harrison Ford walks through the prosthetic lab in "The Fugitive." The first pic is very interesting, but I don't know what I'm seeing. Does the plant have thorns?

That spider is so well camouflaged in the last photo that you hardly notice it at first glance.

VanillaSeven said...

That's a huge scary spider. So brave of you.

i like the first photo, given my penchant for a darker colored background. i think it epitomize the calmness and freshness of the place.

the leg is definitely creepy...lol!

Is that a long leg or a spine growing on a tree. When you're alone in a dark jungle, your imagination plays tricks.

The long leg looks like a stockings leg. It looks like ice has formed. My husband said this morning, his car's windscreen had a sheet of ice. Luckily I am on holiday and I slept til noon. LOL

Spine tingling creepy encounters for sure. =D But are you sure they didn't follow you back home and settled there for good? O__O Creepy things often do that in horror movies. =D
